10 ‘Sweet‘ European Destinations

Thinking about ‘sweet‘ European destinations to satisfy your sweet tooth? Dreaming of French eclairs, Italian cakes, Austrian croissants, and more? Read on and we’ll tell you about 10 ‘sweet‘ European destinations!

1. Paris

The French capital is known worldwide for its desserts and sweets. The eclairs au chocolat, Pain aux Raisins, or Pain au Chocolat are musts. A ‘sweet‘ European destination that shouldn’t be missed.

2. Vienna

This is where the croissant was invented! Legend says it celebrates victory over the Ottomans, whose symbol was a half moon. Vienna is a ‘sweet‘ destination for many other wonderful breads and sweets.

3. Lisbon

Lisbon is a pastry paradise! You can try everything from pingos to pasteis de nata (typical of the area of Belem). Check out any pastelerias to try the widest variety of sweets!

4. Oviedo/Uviéu

The Asturian capital is perhaps the only Spanish city that can rival Lisbon in terms of pastry shops per square metre. They’re famous for their almond and honey carabayones, but also for casadielles or frixuelos, and moscovitas biscuits.

5. London

How could we forget about London cakes with teatime? Going to London means having tea with pastries or cakes at five o’clock. London is a sweet European destination as its also diverse in its chocolates and sweets that cannot be found on mainland Europe.

6. Santiago

Another northern Spanish city is home to the sweet Tarta Santiago. You should also try other typical desserts, like filloas. A ‘sweet’ European destination!

7. Brest

The capital of Lower Brittany is one of the best European cities to enjoy sweets. Here we can taste the wonderful Breton crêpes. In addition, in Brittany we can also savour the delicious palets brétons and gâteaux brétons.

8. Liège

Liège stands out as one of the sweetest European cities, known for its gaufres. The gaufres in Liège are larger and fluffier here than anywhere else in Belgium. Liège is also home of the café liégois, a type of coffee with ice cream, biscuit, and cream. One of the greatest ‘sweet’ European destinations!
